Beggar of Cuzco (14)

This was a beggar on the streets of Cuzco who hid her can and put her hat on for the photo after I had given her 1 Sole, about $0.30.

For this repost, I used Magda Indigo's workshop she did for me to help improve my photo. I cropped out the door in the upper right corner, rotated the photo slightly, increased the contrast, sharpened, and framed.

I thought about converting to B&W but when I did, it seemed to lack something. The colors are fairly muted as it is, but I think it is better in color.

Hi,
First I want to say that I love your original shot a lot. But, After reading your note about B&W choise, I would like to do ws which contains two alternatives 8:)
So,
Crop the old lady from the original and copy. I changed the org. photo in B&W and flip horizantal. Crop it, and add a large black frame. Than pasted the old lady in colour, pllaced on the photo I prepared before 8:)
Resize, add the name which I saw when I look her 8:)
Hope you like it...
